Where can I get more help?

Undergrad Research & Writing Studio

The new Undergrad Research & Writing Studio offers integrated research and writing assistance to undergraduates and English language learners. As you build or revise your term syllabi and Canvas pages, please note the new location on any materials you provide to students.  

With this move comes a new service model where students can get help from trained peer consultants at any stage of their research and writing process. No appointments necessary, just drop in and start working. Students are invited to bring their laptops, pencils, audio recorders, paper, notecards…whatever tools work for them.  

Key things to let your students know about the new Undergrad Research & Writing Studio:  

  • Get help while research and writing: Rather than working with researchers and writers on what they have already generated, studio consultants work with researchers and writers while they are in the process of researching and writing.  

  • Digital (email) confirmation slips: Upon request we will provide a secure digital confirmation  email for each student that they can forward to faculty. 

  • Undergrad Research & Writing Studio on main (2nd) floor of The Valley Library: The studio is located on the main (2nd) floor of The Valley Library in the space previously occupied by the Collaborative Learning Center (aka chemistry and math tutoring). Studio hours will be determined closer to Fall term. 

The Writing Center will continue to offer assistance online via the Online Writing Lab (OWL) and to graduate students by appointment at the Graduate Writing Center, which is  now located in Waldo 102. Research assistance will also continue to be available via the library's Ask Us service. 


Before you send students to the Studio or Library

Before you send students our way, it is helpful for us to know what kind of assistance they need.

1. Email us your assignment

2. Check to see that the materials you want the student to use are available
